Quote

William Blake

“And we are put on earth a little space,
That we may learn to bear the beams of love.”
– The Little Black Boy

“To see a World in a Grain of Sand
And a Heaven in a Wild Flower,
Hold Infinity in the palm of your hand
And Eternity in an hour.”
– “To See a World,” fragment from Auguries of Innocence

“Can I see another’s woe,
And not be in sorrow too?
Can I see another’s grief,
And not seek for kind relief?”
– On Another’s Sorrow

April is National Poetry Month. Over the course of the month, I’ll be sharing with you some of my favorite lines from some of my favorite poets. Today, we begin with William Blake.
